Imo Governor and chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Governors Forum, Governor Rochas Okorocha, has said the party must work hard to secure victory at the Osun governorship rerun election. INEC will on Thursday conduct re-run election in four local governments.
Okorocha told State House correspondents on Tuesday that the result of the election where the opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP, was leading slightly, showed a good fight. He said: “Well, it is inconclusive (the election), as long as it is made inconclusive, it is inconclusive and it is a good fight, I love that kind of democracy where there is a close margin, it shows that there were checks and balances.
“That is why I tell APC, we must never go to bed to sleep; we have a lot of work to do because you are more endangered when you are in power than when you are not in power.
“The forces to pull you down are more than the forces to build you up when you are holding unto power. So APC has a lot of work to do and I hope we will come out fine.”
